Vcarve pro to g sender

Is there a video somewhere that shows how to send your project from vcarve to g sender? i am confused as to how this is done, i have been playing in vcarve have a project almost done, but how do i get it to the g sender program to cut?
its probably really simple and i am just overthinking this, but i would like to know if there is a step by step video on sending a project to G sender and how to cut it.

@msyniuk What CNC machine do you have? If it is a Long Mill, take a look at these Sienci videos

In short, you create your toolpaths in vcarve. You select a post processor from the list they provide - grbl mm is the recommended one - then you save out your toolpaths to .gcode files. You will open those files in gSender and send them to your CNC.


The quick explanation is that you save the toolpaths inside vcarve and load them inside G-sender.

The long explanation is: maybe take a look at the YouTube channel from IDC Woodcraft. He has lengthy tutorials on a lot, and I mean a lot. He goes deep into the longmill, vectric, and gsender.

They are slow-paced videos that go into every aspect of getting started, step by step. Here is one on selecting your post processor and saving toolpaths. I guess you can find one going into Gsender as well.

When everything is a question mark and you don’t know where to start, Garrett will give you a push in the right direction.

Check him out.


I started by using a thumb drive to move my project from my design computer to my old Mac Book Pro. I did that for about a year. Then I purchased “Cloud space” and now I drop it in the cloud and pick it up on my Mac. Mostly cause the Mac’s USB port is “tired” and I didn’t want it to disconnect while carving. I second the suggestion of @gwilki to look more at the directions from Sienci and @Spamming_Eddie Garrett is good people and his videos are excellent.

Make sure you let us know you got I figured out! Have Fun!
